December 7, 2007, Newsletter Issue #94: Good Ramp Materials

Tip of the Week

Material for building your ramp vary in quality as well as price. Skatelite is much more expensive than plywood, but it also lasts longer. Skatelite can cost you $95 per 4' x8' sheet while plywood costs $12 for the same size sheet. Ramp armor is comparable to Skatelite but a bit less expensive. Polyboard is also less expensive but tends to expand and contract with temperature changes, so watch out for buckling. And lastly, there's plywood. Its cheap and can be made to last with a good coat of paint.
